Air pump for fish room
Hi guys and girls,

You may have seen from my previous post I’m starting a discuss breeding project at home.

To get going I’m going to need 10 sponge filters.

Could anyone recommend a good air pump for this (the quieter the better)

its the bubbles that make the noise. Personally i would go with jet lifters ( more expensive ) but do a much better job.
Eheim pumps tend to be the way to go!

Cool I’ve not seen these before? Would they work well in a small breeding tank?
Thanks given by:
Also is the airation from sponge filters not beneficial? Would that be lost using this kind?
Thanks given by:
depends on 'small' Smile they work really well as they create finer bubbles, which make less noise and allow more water to flow up. Only downside is they are a bit more money ( without the sponges ). It's only my opinion but if i was setting up breeding tanks i would certainly opt for HMF filters with jet lifters.

So to start with my set up s going to be 2 breeding tanks 24” x 18” x 12” then 2 grow out tanks 48” x 18” x 12”.

Would these work?

Cool I will look into them. See if I can get a good price.

They don’t seem overly expensive, the only drawback I can see would be each needing their own power supply and extra energy usage.
